Dwayne Johnson set to star in Snitch
Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant
Dwayne Johnson will star in the upcoming drug drama/thriller SNITCH from director Ric Roman Waugh. The film is based on a true story that was featured in a documentary from PBS’s “Frontline” about a father whose son gets thrown in prison for 30 years after being set up in a drug deal gone wrong. The only option his father has is to infiltrate the drug ring to prove his son’s innocence. Filming is set to start in June with most likely a spring 2012 release.
Finally, Dwayne Johnson is taking some roles that he should have been doing for years (I’m still sore about the whole TOOTH FAIRY gig). He’s slowly making his way back to the top of the action genre with roles in FASTER and the upcoming FAST FIVE– I’m keeping my fingers crossed that he will keep this momentum up and that Disney doesn’t come calling with a big fat paycheck.
